How to Save Money...?


I am on a mission.  To save money.  My husband and I have never been extravagant, but I want to start saving more.  I don't really know what I'm doing, when it comes to frugal living, but I've made up a list of ways to save or make money.  One of those ways is to make my own bread.  Of course, homemade bread isn't going to save a whole lot of money, but every little bit helps to make a difference.


Today I made Simply So Good's Artisan Crusty Bread recipe, plain with no additions.  There's no rule saying I need to have typical sandwich bread.  I do have a wonderful normal white bread recipe too, thanks to my friend Jenn, so I'm sure we'll have way more variety than when I was just buying the same type of bread every week at the grocery store.


I can use any tips you have for a stay-at-home mom to save money!

  3. Don't go shopping (unless it's essential!).

  4. I have been meaning to check out McGavin's Bread Basket. They have cheaper bread and wraps, but I think it is buying in bulk.

    There is nothing like homemade bread though with the added benefit of knowing what is going in it.
